The residents of the Bothy Folk Club
Southport U.K. have been singing this song to start the evening for 30 odd years. Now after 38 yrs at the same venue we have moved, see thread

thread.cfm?threadid=65418&messages=25 but we are still singing it.
The original group that started the club 38yrs ago were called the Bothy Folk Group and as a typical bothy ballad they adopted it as a theme tune.
